As we can see here I was recently awarded a "Great Answer" badge on my politics.SE profile,
Which is great and all except for the fact I never answered the question I have been "Awarded [it] for". Indeed when I click on the link it take me to this answer.Which is answer by one Sven Clement, now this has two problems
- I am not Sven Clement, I am SleepingGod - I should not be awarded badges for another persons answer
- No disrespect intended to Mr Clement but his answer (at this time of writing) has only got 68 Public Votes (70 upvotes and 2 downvotes) which means as indicated by this post in the help center that it falls some 32 votes shy of getting a "Great Answer" badge in the first place.
Now I do deserve a "Great Answer" badge in the first place for my answer here, this is simply a bug report that the pop-up box when I click on it in my profile leads to an unerringly random answer that has nothing to do with me and wasn't supposed to get such a badge in the first place.
The bug is reproducible, I have tested it on 3 different browsers
You can test this bug out yourself by going on my "Activity Page", and clicking on my "Newest" badge. This is no longer possible because I earnt a new badge in the meantime, however this is still a technical glitch that needs looking into.
